Do we need a similar fix for TFSRE0_EL1? We get away with this if
suspend is only entered on the idle (kernel) thread but I recall we
could also enter suspend on behalf of a user process (I may be wrong
though).

If that's the case, it would make more sense to store the TFSR* regs in
the thread_struct alongside sctlr_tcf0. If we did that, we'd not need
the per-cpu mte_suspend_tfsr_el1 variable.
